It was really a pleasure to have Moniek and her charming son stay with us. Margaret was really taken with the duo and her girls loved the treats. Thank you, Moniek! We were very glad to welcome them and hope we may host them in the future. We would be glad to see them any time.
[Public & Shameless Plug: Moniek, perhaps join so many of your countrymen in Bali & come visit us at our new eco-resort; your son will love it!]
Thank you, Jeffrey, for your review and stay. Jeffrey was a great guest and was really calm and easy to work with. I was on the West Coast welcoming another guest but found Jeffrey a real pleasure to host. The reservation came in the day before, so my colleague, who always covers for me and meets personally and orient guests, was away for the weekend and unable to re-schedule. But I hope we get a chance to have Jeffrey stay with us again in the future. I could not more highly recommend a guest.
Thank you, Cathy. We were very glad to hosting you back at your old haunts. You were a great guest, and Margaret really enjoyed meeting you.
The brownstone is a landmark building, so updates are tricky. The kitchen faces outside, and as such, any renovations must be approved by the City. The building owner has been zero for three. And if we modernize the bathroom, we lose the grandfathered high water-pressure. NYC can be a challenge.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Thank you, Pablo. Elisabeth and the staff really liked meeting you. I hope that you enjoyed the motor bikes we got for you and that you were able to visit more of the island. It was a pleasure hosting you, and we hope you will visit again.
Baerbel was a wonderful guest, and Andrew and Gurdon found her extremely sympathique, to mix the French and German. I was away in Indonesia working on the Balinese properties we have listed on AirBnB, and I regret that I did not get a chance to meet Baerbel personally. But she was really patient with the cleaner giving her a tour (!) and with the whole zeitgeist (there, I got some German in) of the area. I did phone in from Indonesia to supplement the introduction, but she was already set and soon off enjoying her few days in San Francisco. Real nice person, fine guest, good communication, patient, appreciative. and welcome back any time.
We really loved having Audrey and Daniel. They were great guests: neat, considerate, good communication. And I'm glad that they liked the area and the various recommendations I peppered them with. I was out of town, so I was not able to give them the full welcome treatment, but I hope to spoil them silly in the future.
Mats, Lai, and very cute baby were very welcome and wonderful guests, also extremely patient with a new dog and a bout of intense Bali heat. The villa plus its classic grounds was the former home of the Governor of Brazil's wealthy brother, and these guests really seemed to appreciate the history, personality, and uniqueness of the space. We very much recommend them and would welcome them at any of our locales without pause.
